Goodbye, Farewell, Alvita zane?

(Extreme and totally uncontrolled sobbing)
Ed kind of brought(sniff) things to reality this past Saturday(sniffle, sob) when he said "After today, chances are, we will never see each other again"! (even more extreme uncontrolled sobbing and whaling) I love you guys! (sob, sniff, sob) Wouldn't it be cool if somewhere, somehow we would find ourselves all teaching at the same school! (a little sniff) The "Dream Team"! The "Magnificent 25 or 30 or so"! (a little less sniffing) A "Band of brothers.....and sisters"! Maybe if we concentrate real hard it will happen! (jumping up and down) Let's try! (closing eyes) OK ready, 1, 2, 3, ..................
